Savute Elephant Camp

Savute Elephant Camp offers an oasis type setting in the arid Savute region. Perched on the former banks of the now dry Savute Channel, the camp offers a spectacular bird’s eye view of elephant in their natural habitat, with an adjacent water hole just meters away from the camps main building, the impressions created at Savute will last forever. The luxury tents are housed on raised wooden platforms and shaded by traditional African thatch roof. The large private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock - ideal for viewing wildlife or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy. Tents are luxuriously appointed with such comforts as an en suite bathroom, dressing areas, fully stocked mini bar, four-poster bed complete with mosquito netting, as well as a discreet air conditioning. Dining in the Savute Boma will, without a doubt, bring you closer to nature within the heart of a true bush environment. One of the features of the camp is its specially constructed "elephant proof" swimming pool. Game, which includes a resident pride of lion and rare wild dog, may be viewed from the large deck of the airy central lounge and dining area. As this camp is situated in the Chobe National Park, park regulations prohibit night drives and walking, however game viewing activities are offered in the morning and late afternoons in open safari game viewing vehicles. The Savute is a dramatic area to see high concentrations of elephant and lions. Prides up to 40 strong are not uncommon as are sighting of all the other major predators; the endangered wild dog, leopard, cheetah and the hyena. Savute is also renowned for its excellent birding during the summer months (December through March), as well as being home to some very rate rock paintings drawn by the early San Bushmen, who once inhabited the region.
